Floor Sanding: The initial stage involves using a heavy-duty sanding machine to strip away the old finish, smooth out scratches, and prepare the hardwood floor for refinishing. This is a critical step in both floor restoration and in addressing superficial water damage, as it removes the damaged top layer of wood.
Floor Preparation: Post-sanding, the floors display a clean and level surface with visible wood grains. This stage is essential for both aesthetic purposes and as a preparatory step for sealing and protecting against future water damage. The absence of dust and debris ensures that the sealants will adhere properly.
First Coat Application: The application of the first coat of sealant or varnish is crucial in both floor restoration and water damage mitigation. This layer penetrates the wood to provide a protective barrier, enhancing the floor’s color and safeguarding against moisture.
Second Coat Application: The second coat of finish is applied to give the floor a polished look and an additional layer of protection. This step is particularly important in water damage restoration, as it seals the wood against moisture and helps prevent warping, swelling, and further water ingress.
